Didymus the Lorehound is a pet obtainable from May's Quest Caravan. It is unlocked by allocating at least 25 quest points to the pet track. Controls and outfit settings for this pet can be found in the customisation interface under the companion pets section.

More quest points can be allocated to the pet track to unlock bonuses and perks for the Lorehound. It can be upgraded to carry around emergency quest supplies, change its appearance, increase area loot range and increasing drop rates for lore books. The benefits of the Lorehound will only work in its normal companion form - overriding familiars will not provide Lorehound perks.
